Antoine Griezmann has no plans to leave Barcelona this Summer as he still has three years left of his contract and feels happy in the Catalan club, according to the reliable Tot Costa from Catalunya Ràdio.

Despite the French desire to stay, it is reported that Barça are putting him on a list amongst the players with a higher chance to get transferred at the end of this season.

Although Griezmann has been extremely criticized since he arrived at the club, his numbers this season have indeed been decent. In 40 games in all competitions this season, Barcelona’s number 7 has scored 14 goals and has given 11 assists.

2021 has statistically been one of the best years of his career. Since early January, there have only been three other players in Europe’s top leagues who have directly participated in more goals (goals and assists) than him: Leo Messi (27), Robert Lewandoski (25), and Erling Haaland (20). The Frenchman has 18.

However, it is known that playing at the Camp Nou is not an easy mission, as scoring goals and giving assists might not be enough to convince a Culer. Understanding Barcelona’s game style and being able to smoothly adapt to it is what Barça fans look for in an exciting signing as once Griezmann was.

Now that Ronald Koeman seems to have found the ultimate system and formation for his squad, the French superstar is still expected to adapt to this new method of approaching the game.

Last Sunday’s victory at Anoeta (Real Sociedad’s stadium) exemplified an improvement in his path to fully adapt to the new system, as he scored the first goal of the team and was a more mobile player than in the last few games.

It is yet to be seen if Griezmann will be able to stay in the Catalan club as he desires because it needs to be kept in mind that the current financial situation is terrible and moves have to be made. Also, if some strikers get signed by the new president Joan Laporta, we could expect the French star to be transferred to another club.
